Projects and Operations in Project Management

Explore the distinction between projects and operations in organizational work. Learn how Project Insight's project management software enables efficient tracking of project-related time and expenses, helping organizations allocate resources effectively for success.

Projects and Operations in Organizational Workflows

In any organization, the workflow is typically divided into two key areas: ongoing operations and projects. Projects stand out as unique, time-bound initiatives with definitive start and end points, while operations are the organization's continuous, routine tasks like accounting or production. As all organizational efforts are categorized as either operations or projects, the entirety of an organization's expenses must be allocated accordingly.

Realizing these objectives necessitates the strategic allocation of resources over time, incurring costs.
